Quotes about Being Single

Choosing to be single is neither a "good" choice, nor a "bad" choice. In fact, the really critical issues that determine life happiness are only indirectly related to whether one chooses to marry (or live in a committed romantic relationship). For almost everyone, happiness in life depends upon having a dependable and compassionate mutual support network. While a good marriage can be the cornerstone of such a support network, a single person can also develop a support network that equals or surpasses the level of mutual support present in a typical marriage. Let the following quotes and sayings give you a variety of perspectives on love, marriage, friendship, and mutual support.

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
